On July 27, 1953 the Korean War came to an end. The Wall of Remembrance (around a reflecting pool) was constructed in 2006 of black granite and contains the names of the 40,895 fallen soldiers who fought and died for the South.
We have been on the Big Island for a couple days now. Today’s photo is from our first night. We weren’t at the famous luau happening at our hotel (Courtyard Marriott King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel), but while we kicked back on the lawn between the pool and the beach we could see some of the preparations for the luau. One was today’s photo. I think part of King Kamehameha’s entourage was laughing because they almost all went in the water a moment before.
Three years ago today I went out after dark with a photographer friend of mine and we practiced shooting some long exposures around the streets of Copenhagen. After dark in Copenhagen’s summer means midnightish (this photo was taken at 11:50 p.m.). If you go out at 10 p.m. it will likely still be light outside.
I’m on my way to Hawaii today. Pics from the Big Island coming soon.
